The main way to gain entries is to participate in the party, in other words, to copy the questions I posted (here) and answer them on your own blog, then add your post's link to the Mister Linky widget at the bottom of the official party kick-off post. But that isn't required! You can also earn entries by participating in blog games throughout the week, and by visiting the Etsy shops that are donating prizes.
You will notice that a lot of the entry options ask you to leave a comment on this post containing certain information, like what your favorite item is from a particular shop. You Do Not Have To Leave Me 90 Comments! One comment with all that info from all those entries is fine. If you have an Etsy or Red Bubble account yourself, actually "favoriting" your favorite item in those donor shops would be really nice of you, as a way to thank them for their generous support of the fun we're having, but it's not required.
I should also note that, with the exception of the Hobbit movie buttons, these are not being sent to the winners by me. They're being sent by the donors. The winners will give me their mailing address and I'll give it to the donors. I promise that I will then discard those addresses, and you'll never get junk mail from me at your mailing address or your email address. But that's why there is a US-only giveaway -- the donors are footing this bill themselves, out of the goodness of their hearts, and so they get to choose how far they are willing to ship things.
This giveaway runs through the end of Sunday, September 27. I will draw the winners on Monday, September 28 and post the names of the winners that day, as well a notify them by email.
PLEASE make sure your information for the giveaway widgets includes your current email address so that if you win a prize, you'll get the email informing you that you won! If you don't reply to my email by Monday, Oct. 5, I will choose another winner and award your prize to them instead.
